Great Doctor!!

Dr Friedmann is very knowledgeable and takes the time to listen to all of your questions and explains the procedure very thoroughly. He is very calm, professional, polite, and friendly. I highly recommend him!

Awesome work.

5 out of 5 stars Smart Lipo

Smart Lipo of the abs, flanks, waist, hips, and inner/ outer thighs - Austin, TX

I had smartlipo of my hips, waist, abs, and flanks performed by Dr Daniel Friedmann and I am very happy with the results! I have already scheduled my inner and outer thighs to be done by him next month. I was especially impressed with how informative and down to earth he is. He made sure I was comfortable during the procedure and took as much time as he needed to make sure the contouring was perfect. He is a highly skilled surgeon with a warm and calming aura about him. His bedside manner is impeccable, which really helps when you are extremely nervous about having surgery done!

5 out of 5 stars Breast Fat Transfer

25 Year Old Mom of 2, Long Awaited Lipo + Breast Fat Transfer! - Austin, TX

I pretty much gushed on the doc already, but yeah highly recommend. Cool guy, skilled surgeon. He knows a lot, so you can probably ask him a bunch of questions and he'll give you answers that don't sound too textbookish. He is pretty straightforward and not snobby at all, like some docs can be. I will definitely come back to him to get any other cosmetic stuff I want in the future.

5 out of 5 stars Smart Lipo

SmartLipo Inner/Outer Thighs & Waist- Best Decision of my Life - Austin, TX

Dr. Friedmann is a new addition to the stellar team of Westlake Dermatology practitioners. I made sure to do my research and was impressed by his list of fellowships, clinical trials and publications (I think I even read he has written several text book chapters which I thought neat). I also liked the fact that he is the Clinical Research Director of the Westlake Clinical Research Center. I felt confident to be in the hands of someone with an interest in innovation and advancement in their particular area of medicine (I work in the medical industry and have learned, to my dismay, this to not always be the case). I was SO nervous I almost made myself ill. I have never had surgery, hate shots, can be a baby when it comes to pain and was a bit weirded out by remaining awake during the procedure while foreign metal object punctures my skin and pokes around my insides. Thanks to Dr. Friedmann and the rest of the Staff, the experience was well above my worst nightmares. In fact, it was as pleasant as such a thing can be. He was kind and communicative during the procedure which really put me at ease and helped with any of the occasional discomfort. I am already making a list of additional services I would like to schedule with him in the future including laser tattoo removal and some minor skin care treatments.
